Last week we visited the magical Salvation Mountain. I visited for the first time in 2008 and was lucky enough to meet the artist, Leonard King, who told us the story of how he created this place over the past twenty years. It was a magical experience and since it happened the year that Jeremy and I were first dating we vowed that we would come there together one day.
So we came. It was magical. Seeing such a gigantic work of art is something you don’t get to do every day. We climbed to the top and enjoyed every little room and nook that Leonard had so carefully crafted. It was inspiring. We drove back to our hotel that night feeling humbled and inspired by the mountain.
*Salvation Mountain in located in Niland, California. It’s about 1.5 hours from Palm Springs. If you are ever in the area, it’s worth it.
